Trip to Hartford for Cyclocross Nationals
Posted Jan 9, 2017
We paid for & reserved a non-smoking room & got a smoking room. Was told there were no more non-smoking rooms left. I searched on expedia for a new hotel & there was nothing near the location where I wanted to be unless I was wiling to pay over $150.00 per night. So I drove 5 miles to a Walmart to buy candles & spray to kill the stink in the room. The pillow cases were dirty, so while at Walmart I bought blankets, pillows and pillow cases. The rug was filthy so I used a broom to try & clean it up. Furniture was falling apart, refrigerator had mold in it, the TV kept turning off by itself. So I had to keep turning it back on until it warmed up & stayed on. There were a lot of long term residence at this hotel which I do not remember reading anything about that on their website or Expedia's website. At night people would drive in to the hotel parking lot to just hangout in their car.
